Friendship

I weep over female friendship in YA. WEEP. There can never be too much of this. #mswl

Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖

Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl

#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
• YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.

I would REALLY REALLY like a “Dumplin” for the middle grade audience. In these formative years, there needs to be a book about accepting/loving yourself, how to handle bullies, positive coping mechs, finding true friends, and just general body positivity. #MSWL

I have been a Love Island UK evangelist for several years. Winter season is no less, BUT if you’re writing a book about reality tv, set on a reality show, or girl friendships of the toxic or not variety (YA, Adult) I want to read it!

On the whole, I'm looking for page-turning, escapist, transporting MG and YA fiction. Light on trauma. Big on feelings—humor, romance, friendship, family connections. #MSWL

This day was dominated by Samaritans who gathered supplies, left their homes and headed into the earthquake affected zones to hand out what they could. We saw them everywhere along the southwestern coast. pic.twitter.com/6MGYumlMjb

#MSWL you guys. I want stories of people helping each other out during the hardest of times and finding love and friendship and hope in the face of trauma. Bonus points if it takes place in PR.

(I reopen to queries Feb 1st)

I want a YA version of Never Let Me Go. Light speculative elements and haunting friendships/relationship. Kathy is a voice that still sticks with me to this very day. #mswl

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · Jan 6

Starting the New Year with some updates to my #MSWL: I’m primarily looking for contempory novels right now! Especially if they are upbeat & include: Sisters. Crushes. Friendship Breakups. Sex-Positivity. Gender Expression. Hopeful Endings. Kids/Teens Acting Like Real Kids/Teens.

Middle grade about the spaces where kids get to feel like themselves, like camp, or the treehouse they spent all summer saving up to buy with their friends (ahem) #mswl

🎉I'm OPEN for queries!!!🎉
So it's time for a fresh #mswl thread. pic.twitter.com/5ZkbJUXMUF

For Young Adult, I am really craving the following:
- Fun Historicals like A LADY'S GUIDE
- Best friend stories/platonic love stories.
- Contemporaries that make me cry.
- A YA Killing Eve!
- Stories for young YA (14 and 15-year-olds).
- As always diverse voices.

Something I haven't mentioned but am really on the hunt for: MIDDLE GRADE STORIES. Contemporary, speculative, fantastical - I want it all.

Especially if it's about friendship, odd hobbies, or beginning to figure out who you are.
